Wynonna Judd is said to be speaking with attorneys about formally contesting her late mom’s will which left total control of her $25 million fortune and estate to her widower husband.
As Radar revealed, Naomi Judd made no mention of her daughters Wynonna or Ashley in her official last will and testament in what some called a baffling decision.
Instead, the Grammy award-winning country legend rested all power with her husband of 33 years, Larry Strickland.
The decision has sparked a bitter battle between the squabbling sisters with Ashley believed to be siding with her late mom and Larry.
“Wynonna was banking on getting a piece of the pie,” dished a source, adding Wynonna, 58, believes Ashley and Larry “conspired against her.”
A source close to Ashley, 54, said she believed her mother “knew what she was doing” by not dropping a big stack of cash in her sister’s lap.
“Wynonna has had money problems throughout her adult life,” a family friend confided.
“She’s blown through every dollar she made with The Judds. She even checked into a treatment facility in 2004 for a ‘money disorder!”
Wynonna or Ashley have long been at odds. Wynonna did not invite Ashley — or her mother — to her 2012 wedding to country music legend Cactus Moser.
Their feud exploded in 2013 when Ashley claimed in a court filing that Wynonna had a tracking device planted on her sister’s car.
As we previously reported, Naomi tragically shot herself dead at age 76 on April 30 after a long and hard-fought battle with mental illness.
In the will, Naomi wrote, “I nominate and appoint my spouse, Larry Strickland, as Executor of my estate.”
“In the event my spouse ceases or fails to serve, then I nominate and appoint my brother-in-law, Reginald Strickland, and Daniel Kris Wiatr as Co-Executors. I direct that no bond shall be required of my Executor,” the document read. Naomi and Larry had been married since May 1989.
Back in May, weeks after Naomi’s death, Wynona announced she would be moving forward with the previously announced The Judds: The Final Tour dates.
At the time, Larry said, “I am so happy that in this time of grief for us all, Wynonna has agreed to move forward with this tour as my sweet wife, Naomi. would have wanted her to do.”
The family has become divided in the months since.
Greed and irresponsible behaviors – Not Naomi – but Wynonna’s are the cause. This whole family had toxic relationships for years and all three of these players had mental issues. If Wynonna would get off her butt, write more songs and do more tours she would have at least 25 million bucks for herself. She’s very talented, even as a producer or manager for others, she would make millions. I have all the Judd’s music, All of Wynonna’s albums, and have gone to most of their concerts here in FL. I still listen to her/them, but I have no sympathy for her to be sniffing after Naomi’s money! Just say’n. Hells-bells, there’s a song in just this here controversy! LOL* (…and tapping my foot)
Well at least they are “normal, typical Americans” in this respect!!!
all female siblings + a deceased parent’s estate and will = greed & chaos EVERY TIME!!!!!!!
lol lol lol
You never get to know someone untill some thing like this (The real person inside their soul… )Make your own money SHAMEFUL and so low ,greedy >>>>>>>>>>>>Wynonna.
